michigan cannabisYou Can Only Vote For Marijuana Reform In Michigan If You Are Registered To Vote

Dan Riffle, Marijuana Policy Project

With marijuana policy initiatives on the ballot in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Flint, Ypsilanti, and Kalamazoo, Michigan voters have a chance to send a strong message to their elected officials. But in order to do so, you have to be registered to vote, and today is the deadline to register.

Click here to download a voter registration form. You can also get one from your local county clerk, military recruitment office, or a Secretary of State branch office. Fill out the form, find the city or county clerk’s office on the form that’s closest to you, and turn it in or mail it to that address. If you’re mailing it, be sure the form is postmarked for today! To check your registration status or find your polling place, visit the Michigan Voter Information Center website. If you’re over 60 years of age, or expect to be out of town on election day, you can request an absentee ballot. However, if this is your first time voting at your current address, you’ll need to show up at the polls and vote in-person.

Thanks, and remember: Election Day is Tuesday, November 6. Head to the polls and help make history in Michigan!

  1. City
    Commissioners in Kalamazoo, Michigan voted unanimously on Monday [October 1, 2012] night
    to decriminalize marijuana, saying that the new ordinance will help
    police respond to serious crimes even faster than before

    The ordinance imposes a misdemeanor charge for adults over 21 who are
    caught with less than one ounce of marijuana, carrying with it a fine
    of up to $100 or a jail sentence not to exceed 93 days. Similarly, first
    time offenders who plead guilty will have the option of serving
    probation in exchange for a deferred judgement that is not considered a
    conviction. The city previously prosecuted small time marijuana
    offenders under state law, which prescribes a fine up to $2,000 and no
    more than a year in jail.
